Kiss star Gene Simmons has laughed off the racism row engulfing British reality TV, insisting there will always be prejudiced people in the world.
Celebrity Big Brother has created controversy in both Britain and India over allegations Bollywood beauty Shilpa Shetty has been subjected to a torrent of racial abuse since entering the programme's sealed compound earlier this month (JAN07).
But Simmons, who stars in his own reality show FAMILY JEWELS, says, "What's the big deal?
"Some people are racist and some are not. Either you show reality, or you don't."
